look at the good in your body and base you reactions and attitude off of that. Why look up to social media outlets to decide what you need to fix on your body, rather look at your body and see all the needs no fixing at all. Just as in Baird's article, “ What if you just stay a duck?”. Why does society not just stay as their own ugly duckling self, and find the parts they love about themselves as Baird was inciting towards. Every single person has a trait about themselves that they should like: ““Some kids are good spellers;... some are fast runners;... some are awesome at netball.””(Being Dishonest About Ugliness 1.) Beauty needs to be taken as a whole and not a certain aspect of a person, and standards need to be dropped from the incentives of all people. Beauty and the standards attached to it need to be rethought and understood differently today. Yes, there are people who are more attractive than others but there is no single person who is truly beautiful in all aspects. People need to accept their own personal traits and look at themselves as a whole rather than one single issue. Just as Julia Baird referenced in her article. People need to be okay with being the Ugly Duckling, because in their own hearts they can and have the ability to change into a swan around those who are only focused on how they look.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
